While investigating a stolen tractor, homicide and major crime are led to a more gruesome crime and two missing local lads.Some parts describing the slaughterhouse I found to be unsettling,but the twists in the story made up for it.
An interesting author that I would like to read again.

The Daughter  by Jane Shemilt      Post

This is a fascinating story of a devastating search for a daughter who went missing after a school play. It's a soul searching journey of a family trying to find out if they some how had done anything to  contribute to her
disappearance. It's a page turner filled with suspense and intrigue.

My Father's Wives by Mike Greenberg Post

My Father's Wives    by  Mike Greenberg                 Post

   Jonathan Sweetwater has been blessed with money, a fulfilling career, great kids, and Claire, his smart, gorgeous, sophisticated wife. But there is one thing Jonathan never had: a relationship with his father.

My Thoughts:
This is a story of a son who is trying to find out just what his father was like and how it would effect his life. Married five times he sets out to contact all the wives, to see what they thought of his father and why he married them. In the end I think he has to realize he has to be his own person and be grateful for the life he has now. It is an interesting read.
